Jodie Whittaker Announced to Play New Doctor in Doctor Who

A show that is admired by many fans from across the world: Doctor Who has graced our screens with many different personalities becoming the protagonist.

After nearly 50 years in the making, Doctor Who has finally announced that female actress Jodie Whittaker is going to take on the incredible role from Peter Capaldi.

The Internet had very mixed opinions on the whole issue with those complaining that this was done in order to be politically correct and that the tardis was going to be painted bright pink.

On the other side of the spectrum, many people saw this as a new opportunity for more female actors to get recognised and to also break the stereotype that women are weak, submissive and don’t deserve any of the stronger roles.

Personally, although I don’t watch Doctor Who as much as I used to, I believe that Jodie is opening up the doors to more young influential actors and actresses. Also, I believe that she will do a marvellous job considering she worked with one of the previous doctors, David Tennant, on the BBC hit series ‘Broadchurch’.

However, we can only truly find out when Jodie takes to the screens in December.
